Review: 'An engaging, unusual and completely engrossing read'
- Beverly Birch author of 'Rift'
What is Oliver's strongest
yearning? Is it that he'd be reunited with his missing father? No, it's about
his hair. He survived a brain tumor, endured
chemotherapy, and now wants nothing more than to stop being
bald as an egg. He simply yearns for the return of the first
Seemingly a vain yearning, true, but just talk to any juvenile
who's had a bout with cancer and see what they really want
out of life. Oliver is thrown in a new world, as discovering his psychic talents.
The blossoming of a simpatico friendship with the older
but fragile Aura teaches him about coping with illness in
life. A love interest in mysterious Justine. The continuing
companionship of his indefatigable cat Flop.
